Not really my type of beer so I'll say that first. I truly feel it's a bit overrated. Looks great. Taste is....meh. I've had better.

Tried this beer twice. The first one might've been an old batch because it was kinda sour but the last one I had taste great. It was malty with a nice semi sweet finish. I'll definitely be drinking more of these in the future.
